David Wright will not be in the lineup Tuesday because of that pesky left shoulder.
“He came in today and his shoulder was a little more sore than normal,” Terry Collins said. “So we wanted to get it looked at again.”
The Mets sent Wright to a hospital in Manhattan for an MRI. An update is expected after Tuesday night’s game against the Rockies.
David Wright has been battling a bruised rotator cuff in his non-throwing shoulder since mid-June, missing a few games. Wright has struggled at the plate since the All-Star break, but he denies the shoulder is a factor. Wright has been hitting well of late, with 10 hits over his last six games.
Collins said the fact that Wright self-reported the pain speaks volumes.
“This guy plays through so much pain that when he comes in and says something, it’s a little bit of a concern.”
